Eric’s Bad Movies: “Children of the Corn” (1984), which spawned innumerable sequels despite being as dull as corn. [Film.com]

Re-Views: “Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever” (2002), a bad movie with a bad title that I decided to give another chance. [Film.com]

Re-Views: “American Beauty” (1999). There was some backlash after this won all the accolades. The word “overrated” gets tossed around a lot. I took another look. [Film.com]

Quiz: Female Character in a James Bond Movie, or Drag Queen We Made Up? Test your knowledge! [Pajiba]
